It seems like there are two huge problems with our federal government today as it relates to its ability to protect the welfare of citizens.  One, there are massive holes, deliberately created, where there simply are no laws and regulations where they are badly needed.  Two, regulatory bodies have been chronically starved of resources to the point where they are unable to properly enforce what laws and regulations exist.  These are not accidents.  They are the product of decades of government working against the interest of citizens.
